I have been very busy with designing and crafting jewelry for Charity Charms, which is a jewelry company that provides jewelry products for non-profit organizations.
The current project: I'm working on bracelets, necklaces, & earrings. Each order is a 100+ piece order.
How my wholesale journey began
I worked at a local large jewelry & bead distributor store. I started making jewelry for jewelry designers that didn't have the time to make their own pieces. My clients would supply me with all the parts and pieces. A majority of the jewelry was native influenced because most of my clients were Native American & traveled the west coast selling their goods to southwestern stores. I made thousands of earrings and necklaces in 2013-2015. Some of the orders were infinite. It solely depended on how much I could make in a week. That was excellent profits but exhausting.
I slowly transitioned into not taking so many wholesale orders two years ago because I wanted to focus on my own line and flourish my high quality jewelry brand, which ended up being a very exciting transition. I currently only do freelance wholesale work for Charity Charms since I agree with the companies morals and vision. It truly is a perfect fit for me. I get to make jewelry for companies that are making a difference in the world and being a part of that is truly special, I am forever grateful for the opportunity.
NOTE: I had to change my my blogs direction due to an abundance of ordering coming in and wholesale work. I will be blogging about custom pieces and large projects! I was really hoping my 100 day of 100 designs was going to work but I didn't consider the amount of work I already have on the table. Thank you for understanding
